Boy Scouts Movement Centennial
One hundred years
ago, Lord Baden-Powell ran his experimental camp on Brownsea Island
on the South Coast of England, for 20 boys from different social
backgrounds. Today, Scouting is a million times bigger and involves
girls and boys, women and men from every origin, religion and
culture, and nearly every country in the world.
In 2007 we celebrate our 100th anniversary. We will celebrate the
achievements of the past 100 years, we will celebrate Scouting today
and we will celebrate the commitment that Scouts worldwide undertake
to make a difference in their communities. Most importantly, we will
look ahead to a second century of Scouting.
Centenary Logo. The central element of this logo shows the
relationship between our traditional fleur-de-lys logo and the dove
of peace, with peace rising with the sun into a bright future. The
numbers 100 and 2007 are prominent, as well as the World Emblem.
One World One Promise. The theme responds to young people's
aspirations and is based on the Movement's mission and educational
values. It is unifying and universal. As Scouts we will all make our
Promise to do our best to work together and build a society based on
the greater justice and solidarity. We make a commitment to play an
active role in creating a better world, irrespective of our origin
gender, culture or religion.
Our Promise compels us to help to improve the world. As Baden-Powell
said, "Leave this world a little better than we found it."
Three fingers Scout Sign and the flag. The
Scout Sign is made by raising your right hand to shoulder height,
palm to the front, thumb resting on the nail of the little finger,
and the other fingers upright, pointing upwards. The three fingers
remind a Scout of the three parts of the Scout Promise and Law: Duty
to God, duty to other and duty to self. The Scout Sign is given at
the making of the Promise, or as greeting.
